"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Good morning, John! Got my swag yesterday, but somebody packed a WFMU shot glass instead of the JA in the AM edition. I'll have to see if Mr. Joe M. can get me sorted.
Avatar Wed. 8/22/12 6:33am JA:

moringg george. all wrongs will be righted
  Wed. 8/22/12 6:44am George of Troy:

"All" is rather encompassing :)
Avatar Wed. 8/22/12 6:47am JA:

true, we can fix anything you send back.
  Wed. 8/22/12 7:03am cool fool:

sorry unrelated, but how is Bob Dylan's Christmas Album an 'FU' to the record industry?
Avatar Wed. 8/22/12 7:06am JA:

i'll answer your question with another question. when is a hamburger not a hamburger?
  Wed. 8/22/12 7:14am hamburger:

hmm when he's a fool?
  Wed. 8/22/12 7:18am menahan st:

Ja, the display text you have for the show made me lol
Avatar Wed. 8/22/12 7:20am JA:

ha. in the spirit of cohen/copland. my guess at your riddle is that in an attempt for the industry to bing crosby-fy dylan, he handed in a xmas LP that would be tough to market perenially (unlike a fahey xmas lp, say). but since dylan is the music industry, i'm not sure if it was an FU, or just a miscaculation that new weird america might exist
  Wed. 8/22/12 7:22am cool fool:

hmm interesting answer sir
Avatar Wed. 8/22/12 7:25am JA:
